Partnerships Unites for Health Children

When the Texas legislature passed HB 3 last spring they overhauled what courses are and are not required to graduate from a Texas High School. Among the changes are a reduction in Physical Education and the elimination of Health.

The State Board of Education has been left to sort through the massive new law and decide how it should be implemented. Click here to tell SBOE members to keep PE and Health in our schools!

Worst Fast Food Cities

Men’s Health just released a story on the Worst Fast Food Cities in America. They took a look at the number of fast food chains in a city per capita, then factored in how many people visit fast food restaurants, then they looked at how many people consumed fast food seven or more times a month.

Unfortunately Texas was well represented on the list including nabbing the #1 spot. Take a look:

1. Arlington, Texas F
16. San Antonio, Texas D-
17. Fort Worth, Texas D-
22. Houston, Texas D-
30. Corpus Christi, Texas D
37. Dallas, Texas D+
39. El Paso, Texas D+
50. Austin, Texas C-
57. Lubbock, Texas C
